Pop star Katy Perry has axed two dates on her California Dreams tour after suffering a bout of food poisoning.
The I Kissed a Girl hitmaker has apologized to fans for cancelling shows in Chicago, Illinois on Friday and in St Paul, Minnesota on Saturday. Both concerts have been re-scheduled for August.

In a post on her blog on Friday, Perry writes, “Chicago and St. Paul – I’m so sorry to have to postpone today and tomorrow’s shows. But I’ll be back 8/21 (CHI) and 8/23 (St. Paul)!”

In a message on her official website, she adds, “I apologize to my fans in Chicago and the Twin Cities for not being able to perform this weekend, but I am going to return in a few weeks to give them the very best show ever!”
